  • alitaalita Registered User Posts: 254 Junior Member
    yeah, i live relatively near penn so dont sweat it if you havent gotten it, esp. w/ all of the snow stuff around here. you never know w/ the mail...

    hey i got the test but my language was arabic.. i speak it but im pretty bad at reading and writing (i guess i better cram for this), anyways, although probably very rare did anyone else chose arabic or does anyone know what the test is like?

    anyone know the deadline to mail it back in?
  • alitaalita Registered User Posts: 254 Junior Member
    yeah I actually am gonna do arabic but since my language abilities are not good enough right now (2nd semester university arabic) I told them I would enter with french and switch to arabic. I think that probably helped w/ admissions if I get in.
  • alitaalita Registered User Posts: 254 Junior Member
    when I visited penn the girl I stayed with was an Arabic target person and she said it was just a "talk about _______ subject" thing. But I think she was actually personally interviewed by one of the admissions people who is an arabic professor.

    I really reccomend not worrying about the speaking test, I got really really nervous during my test and my test sounded something like this:

    "I we did came to Washington to stare at Uncle in time of hotness"

    mmhmm Catch is right. I didn't get a test and I was deferred :-D

    yeah i think im screwed about the arabic proficiency test b/c ive known how to speak the language forever but im just now learning to read and write (which is really hard) so i dont really know what to do, its not like we can take arabic at school- ive taken spanish forever at school but i dont know what to expect from this proficiency test.

    Yea. The test is pretty easy and basic. It has a fifteen minute speaking session where there will be five prompts. As long as you show "proficiency"...they don't expect the kids to be fluent.

    catch- what language was your test for
  • Catch-22Catch-22 Registered User Posts: 1,233 Senior Member
    Chinese

    There's also a multiple choice section and a short essay. But really really easy stuff...the basics. :) BEST OF LUCK!
